Launchpad Pro help needed

Hi figured someone here might be able to throw some light on this. I am using a Launchpad Pro in standalone mode. I am using a Yamaha MD-BT01 as a midi wireless transmiter and an Ipad to receive and Play . Only note mode lights up and I have to put it into setup mode to access Session, Device and User. Is this normal? I do not possess a lighten to usb so hence the midi adapter. I have a Mac if I plug it in to the Mac will all the controls become available? and should I get a lightening to Usb connector and connect directly to the Ipad?
Hope somebody can understand me, since I am a complete newbe to the Launchpad and I don’t know what I should be receiving.
Thank you in advance.

    Yes this is normal. I use setup to switch modes all the time. Only note and fader modes work on iOS. Session is only Ableton and bitwig etc.

  • Cheers, just worried I had a dodgy unit. Thanks for your quick reply.

    Try just powering up and connecting cables in a different order or plug in power before turning on, etc....don't have other apps open especially like the Launchpad app when you plug in.

    Just my experience w Novation gear oddities.

    His unit is working fine. Session mode doesn't light up in iOS or when you use it to control external hardware.
